Hi,
I am writting a function to initialize arrays.

I have arrays with different size and types.
like:
  double One [30]
   int two [40]
so I wrote a function to initialize them:
To call the function: ArrayInitialize ("One",0,30);

void ArrayInitialize2D(string Arrayname,int initvalue,int xsize);
{
   int i;
      if (Arrayname=='One')
     {
        for (i=0;i<=xsize ;i++)
        {
       One[i]=initvalue;
        }  
    }

   if (Arrayname=='TWO')
     {
        for (i=0;i<=xsize ;i++)
        {
       TWO[i]=initvalue;
        }  
    }


} // end of function

My question:
Is there a way to convert the array name (e.g. string "One")
to a real variable that represent an array name
something like:
Inside the function:
 for (i=0;i<=xsize ;i++)
        {
       $Arrayname[i]=initvalue;
        }  
Thanks!
